The agreement between Projekt DEAL institutions and Wiley is part of a nationally coordinated strategy to enable a large scale transition of today's scholarly journals to open access. As of 2019, researchers from Projekt DEAL institutions can now read all Wiley journals and publish their own primary research and review articles open access, retaining copyright of their works.
Wiley will not charge fees to authors covered by the agreement. The Publish and Read (PAR) fees and Gold Open Access APCs related to the agreement* will be paid centrally via institutions.
*Some institutional funding policies may differ for gold OA APCs. Please check with your library for any exceptions.
As a requirement of the DEAL agreement, the statement ‘Open Access funding enabled and organized by Projekt DEAL’ will be added automatically to the acknowledgment section of your paper. This information is for identification purposes only to help assign your article to the correct institution should you select the open access option, and it will not affect any information in the published article.

1If you don't order open access initially, your manuscript will be published under the traditional closed access model. You may order open access retroactively, but once your paper is published in Early View or In Issue online you are no longer eligible to publish at no charge (without prior communication with Wiley)
2If you are no longer affiliated with an eligible German institution at the point of acceptance of your paper, you do not qualify.
3Eligible review articles look at primary research findings, describing trends and developments. Editorials, community news, book or media reviews etc., are excluded.
